Wills And Probate
There may come a time when you or a loved one will have to plan for the interests of family and friends after your death. Establishing a will is an essential part of an estate plan that not only guarantees that your assets are distributed according to your wishes, but it also ensures that your loved ones will be taken care of after your passing. Almost anything can be included in a will, including:
- Personal belongings
- Bank accounts
Employing the services of a highly-skilled family law attorney to assist in creating or updating your wills and probate matters is highly suggested. The attorney will assist in:
- Explaining which laws apply to your situation
- Determining what to include/exclude
- Drafting or updating the document
The attorney’s responsibility does not always end when the document has been drafted and signed. Following the death of the testator (the person who has formulated the will), an attorney may be appointed to ensure that the family and the court uphold the wishes of the recently deceased.
The following links have been provided to better allow you to understand how will’s work and why one should be drafted.
